Ceme­tery con­tro­versy laid to rest

The Compass - - REVIEW 2009 -

( 30/ 06/ 09)

David and Melody En­gram wanted to pur­chase three plots to­gether at the town's In­ter­faith Ceme­tery, but were flatly re­fused. The ceme­tery sold only sin­gle and dou­ble plots, and it re­fused to ac­com­mo­date the cou­ple's wish to be buried along­side their ter­mi­nally ill daugh­ter, Amelia.

Af­ter a week of con­tro­versy, the three churches, which op­er­ate the In­ter­faith Ceme­tery, agreed to change the rules, al­low­ing the griev­ing fam­ily to pur­chase three ad­ja­cent burial plots.
